Denmark Wants a New Route for Nord Stream 2 Gas Pipeline

Bloomberg reported: A controversial natural gas pipeline from Russia to Germany may be delayed after Denmark asked the company behind the link to investigate an alternative route. Denmark’s Energy Agency, which is carrying out an assessment on how the new gas link would affect the environment in its exclusive economic zone of the Baltic Sea, asked the pipeline’s promoters to study a different route. It has not rejected either of the two pending permit applications, Nord Stream 2 said on Wednesday. The move extends uncertainty about what European Union authorities might do to block the pipeline, which Nord Stream 2 says is on track to start working at the end of this year.

Proposal To Drill For Shale Gas At U.S. Steel Site Near Pittsburgh

State Impact Pennsylvania reported: At hearing Wednesday night on a proposal to drill for natural gas at a U.S. Steel facility in the eastern Pittsburgh suburbs, dozens of residents and environmentalists lined up to speak out against the plan, as well as grill state officials and company representatives with questions. New Mexico-based Merrion Oil and Gas wants to drill at the Edgar Thomson plant next year to supply natural gas to the steelmaking facility. It has already secured some approvals from municipalities in the path of drilling, and now it’s seeking several permits from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. In addition to building a wellpad and drilling in the Marcellus Shale, the company also plans to build access roads and two pipelines, including one for gas and one for water. Wednesday’s hearing in Braddock began with Merrion representatives explaining plans for the project and DEP officials outlining permit requirements. But it soon evolved into a contentious string of questions and criticism from attendees. For more on this story visit stateimpact.npr.org or click https://n.pr/2HVDbv6
